‘New deal’ for tenants to be delivered in Renters Reform Bill

The ‘biggest change to rent law in a generation’ will be delivered with the Renters Reform Bill (the Bill).

The Government says it says it will improve the lives of millions of renters by driving up standards in the private and social rented sector, delivering on the Government’s mission to level up the country.

Levelling Up and Housing Secretary Michael Gove said: “This is all part of our plan to level up communities and improve the life chances of people from all corners of the country.”

A new Private Renters’ Ombudsman will be created to enable disputes between private renters and landlords to be settled quickly, at low cost, and without going to court.

The new law will be put in place for the 4.4 million households privately renting across England by extending the Decent Homes Standard to the private rented sector for the first time – giving all renters the legal right to a safe and warm home.

It is designed to ensure all renters have access to secure, quality homes, levelling up opportunities for the 21 per cent of private renters who currently live in homes of an unacceptable standard.

Part of the Bill will also ban Section 21 ‘no fault’ evictions, protecting tenants from unscrupulous landlords, while strengthening landlords’ legitimate grounds for taking back their property.
